"Space Ghost Coast to Coast" Chat

Where: America Online
When: Friday, July 25, 1997

In the beginning... the universe was dark... well, it's still pretty dark, but at least it's a bit more entertaining than we thought.

This July, Space Ghost returns from a six-month sabbatical to host the first of 24 new episodes of "Space Ghost Coast To Coast," airing each Friday night at 11pm ET. This summer's rollout marks the largest number of consecutive premieres ever for Cartoon Network's out-of-this-world late night talk show.

To kick off the event, Space Ghost and Zorak have learned how to touch-type in order to bring you the most invigorating intelligent chat on AOL since Koko the Monkey graced the stage.

For those of you unfamiliar with this cosmic odd couple, here's a little background... there's going to be a test, so study:

Space Ghost - Host:

Mr. Ghost is a cartoon superhero who made his television debut in 1966 as part of the Hanna-Barbera series "The Space Ghost and Dino Boy." Designed by Alex Toth, Space Ghost is a black-hooded, yellow-caped interplanetary crusader who rockets through space in a sleek Phantom Cruiser. In each of the original episodes, Space Ghost had seven minutes to save the universe, using an array of devices such as an "Invisi-Belt." As host of "Space Ghost Coast to Coast," Mr. Ghost enters the battle of the late-night wars. Each week, he steers the show with bravado, combining a no-nonsense interview style with beguiling charm and extremely destructive power bands.

Zorak- Band Leader:

As a green creature with a wicked cackle, Zorak starred as Space Ghost's nemesis in several of the original "Space Ghost and Dino Boy" episodes. Recently freed from the Omegan Prison by Space Ghost for the sole purpose of fronting the show's house band, Zorak turns in his Matter Intensifier for a keyboard. Critics planet to planet have praised his unique sound as being "worthy of someone who resembles a praying mantis." Clearly, Zorak has mastered the keyboard with fervor, validating Space Ghost's long-held advocacy of a prison-release musical training program.

If you already know the show, you know these two can get feisty, so come prepared with plenty of questions and more than a little attitude - for the first-ever "Space Ghost Coast To Coast" Chat on Friday, July 25 at 10pm ET.
